Day 69 – God’s Thought for You

by

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall you call upon me, and ye shall go and pray to me, and I will harken to you. Jer. 29:11-12

I believe it is not by chance that you are reading this devotional right now. God says ‘I know the thought that I think towards you’. Imagine that God is thinking about you – yes, YOU! Note that God’s thoughts are not of evil, but of peace. His thoughts are designed to give you a future and a hope – to take you to an expected end. So, let fear be far from you. Even when events and people’s comments have made you feel like a hopeless person. It is what God is saying that you should accept, think on, and take to heart.

His thought about you is that you will have a better life.  Look at it in Message version ‘…I know what I am doing. I have it all planned out – plans to take care of you, not to abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for’. Let your hope rise.      

When you are confused about life; and people make you think like a hopeless person, remember this fact, and as you do, you will have better understanding. So, don’t run your life by yourself, get back to the maker of your destiny – he promises to listen. Look at verse 12 in Message version ‘when you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen’. Why don’t you go to Him if you are confused, He will listen and reveal afresh to you His thought for you. There is light at the end of the tunnel for your great future. It is well with you, and may God bless your day, in Jesus name. Amen.
